23 November Reflection Quote

"Do not let us wish to die yet. We have done too little for our God and for his work!" Madeleine Sophie Barat, Letter 40 to Adrienne Michel, 1817.

At times we may feel like quietly giving up. Our founder, St Madeleine Sophie Barat, would have none of that!

Reflecting on her words we can ask ourselves:
– Does this saying reflect a Jansenist attitude of unworthiness, or needing to earn God’s love?
– What are we doing for God?
– How can we respond more fully to God’s love?
